New Grand baby!!!

Introducing Miss Maddison Renae Jackman! weighing in at 5 1/2 #, 18" long, arrived yesterday afternoon.
Because of the age of her mom and previous complications, 3 times weekly monitoring was neccessary for the safety of both Mom and Baby. Gwen was able to carry her till the last 2-3wks of third trimester. Monitoring yesterday morning showed the placenta had died and the baby had lost weight, so a c-section was performed immediately.

Mama and baby
What a miracle! Baby is just lovely and very healthy with a good healthy appetite. Mama had been battling near pnemonia for the last week and can now be given antibiotics for it. I am so full of gratefulness to the Lord for His mercy and goodness!

Awww... Such a cutie! Congratulations to all!!! Glad everything was ok, I had placenta previa with my third son, very scary stuff. He was a month early and I had an emergency c-section the day he decided to come into our world.

Congratulations to you, Sunny, and your family. Miss Madison Renae is beautiful , and I am so happy she is doing well. I always love to look at the face of a new mother looking at her baby, and of a father holding them in their arms, priceless.
Hugs, Sue
